Back to school season is time to change your mindset, and renew your thoughts and ways of thinking. God never intended for us to live according to the world’s system and ways of doing things. In Hebrews 10:38, He said that we are to live by FAITH, because without it, it is impossible to please Him. If you can renew your mind and thoughts toward the things of God, you can change your world. Changing your mindset can change your circumstances because your mind is powerful. It has the power to bring life or to bring destruction, because everything starts with a thought. How you think determines how you live.
Joshua 1:7-8 (NIV)
7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
